endings. beginnings. excitement.
I feel like these pictures speak for themselves! Oh by the way… Cole is pretty rad.
relax. enjoy. friendships.
A few weekends ago I went up to Sedona for some shoots and friend time. I wanted to share this session for a few reasons… 1. I LOVED the idea of capturing friends hanging out while they vacationed. 2. I LOVED how they turned out. 3. I want to show you guys sessions that are out of the box.
One of my dear friends that I normally shoot while I am up in Seattle was going to be in Sedona with 5 other couples and their friends, she wanted to capture their group just being. If you know anything about me this is RIGHT up my ally!! I got to the house and quite a few of the kiddos were napping so I got to hang listening to them play guitar and practicing yoga (did I tell you how rad this group is!) after that a few more little ones woke up and I got to capture the whole group! Enjoy!
passion. joy. life.
Here is a post that has nothing to do with me taking pictures, but just the opposite. A few months ago I decided I wanted to have my pictures taken, I needed some updated photos to put on my website, blog and social media. As much as I love being behind the camera is about as much as I don’t enjoy being in front of it… or so I thought. I spent hours trying to figure out what to wear, and there was just one of me (well Hoover did not need anything fancy) and trying to figure out what I wanted to show in my pictures. Like I shoot you guys, I just wanted to show my energy so that when I look back at these I remember who I was at this time of my life. Trevor (my awesome photographer) showed up and made it so much easier then I had expected. We spent some time at my house because I want to show my clients and friends a little bit more about me and my surroundings, and then we went a mile south and spent some time in the arts district in Phoenix. Since you guys let me into your life, I just wanted to invite you into mine a bit.
birth. new. life.
Meeting and getting to photograph Torin felt like the most natural progression in my journey with Amanda and Steve. I have been there for so many of their special days and moments and feel so grateful that they let me in to capture their life. (you can see some of their sessions here, here and here) At home sessions have become a new love of mine, especially with newborns. You get to capture what life is really like and I love showing a whole story of the family and those first few days, it also doesn’t hurt when you have a baby that is a little star and parents that are this good looking!! I love getting around to blogging sessions from last year and re-looking at these moments, can’t believe he is already 5 months old!
fall. colors. sun.
I have so many sessions to share from the past few months, and I am on a mission to do it! This sweet family was from my time in Cincinnati this past fall. We had amazing weather, colors and light!
